Making Tax Digital for Retail Businesses

Making Tax Digital for VAT requires VAT registered businesses with taxable turnover above the VAT registration threshold to keep records in digital form and file their VAT Returns using software. The vast majority of businesses will need to do this for VAT periods starting on or after 1 April 2019. Businesses with a taxable turnover below the VAT threshold can also sign up for MTD for VAT voluntarily.

Retail Accounts VAT Returns – Making Tax Digital

For any VAT Return period which starts on or after 1st April 2019 you will be required to submit your VAT Return electronically. If you have a VAT Group Registration then you do not need to start doing this until the period starting on or after 1st October 2019.

Our Retail Accounts software is now available to submit your VAT Returns electronically.
